I first bought this album when it came out on record back in the late 70s and was absolutely mesmerised by his playing. Plus, all the tunes were so melodic yet haunting that I would listen to the album over and over again, soothing my teenage angst. Then, someone borrowed it from me and I never got it back. I searched all over the shops but alas, the record was no longer on sale and I was gutted. Years went by, I got married, got on with life until Amazon came along. I thought I'd just check to see if they had it and there is was! I could not believe my eyes. I immediately ordered 2 CDs, one for a friend.
Just listening to his playing brought back so many memories, and all the reasons why I love this album. Gordon's playing is just terrific. And unlike the reviewer from Spain, I could feel all the emotions he put into his playing and music. Gordon took me on a journey of Blake and his world and visions, and I've never left. Stranded for a few years, perhaps, but never left.
If you have to buy the one definitive guitar album, this has to be it. You'll never regret it but remember this. Never, ever lend it to anyone unless you're sure you'll get it back!
